Beauty Tips: Aloe Vera Gel

6:08 PM Roberta W. P. F 0 Comments

Making aloe vera gel at home is really useful and simple, the only necessary ingredient is a mature aloe vera plant. It's very useful to apply over cuts, wounds, burns and scars, and it is also perfect to moisturize and refresh dry skin.

The first thing you have to do is cut some leaves (called pencas) from the plant.
Then cut them from the sides and put them in water for 24 hours, the water should be changed at least 2 times to expel the toxic resin (called aloin) that irritates skin to avoid that mixture in our gel.

After that peel skin on one side with a knife, until you see the clear gel. Remove it with a spoon scraping the pulp.

Finally place the gel in a blender, add a tablespoon of lemon juice, vitamin C poder and  germ oil (has large amounts of Vitamin E).
Mix everything at full speed until you have a smooth paste.
Finally put it in a clean glass jar and put it in the fridge.

So enjoy this summer, wear sunscreen and refresh with this amazing recipe!
